Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before

Broken record, turntable, some assembly required.

Maine needs to tighten gun laws to prevent illegal sales

Maine has one of the highest gun ownership rates in the country and a higher rate of death from firearms than Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire and six other states.

As you can imagine, changing Maine's gun laws to more closely mirror those of New Hampshire is not being considered as a solution. Also, strangely absent from their "analysis" is Washington DC's firearms fatality rate.

I know.

Apply shocked face here.

Maine is the No. 1 supplier of guns used in crimes in Massachusetts.

Sure it is, in some alternate universe where 84 is greater than 385.

Additional commentary from yours truly in the comments over there.
